WWE Superstar Alexa Bliss recently discussed the trials and tribulations of being a WWE performer in an interview.

Speaking to Metro, Bliss revealed what it is like dealing with online trolls as well as the schedule of working multiple matches a week.

“I feel like a lot of people don’t really understand ’“ nine times out of 10 when you see us performing, we are going on no sleep, we are going on beat up bodies because we do travel four, five, six days a week” Bliss began.

“We are emotionally exhausted, we are mentally exhausted, we are physically exhausted but we are doing it to entertain everyone else” she added.

“I agree that everyone should have the right to speak their opinion. But when you talk about us as human beings, people, and not our characters, that’s where the line stops and I don’t feel like that’s OK” the former Women’s Champion continued.

“But we do it because we love what we do, we love entertaining people. It’s really disheartening and heartbreaking when we are putting our all out there’¦It’s my physical best.

“I know it may not look like my best, but that’s all the energy I had to give that day. I gave my personal all. We’re told how terrible we are and how we should be fired ’“ that’s not nice, and people forget that there is a person behind the character we are portraying on TV” Alexa Bliss concluded.
